Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1316) IDL code-generation generates too-long literals for very large schemas
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 03:24:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13647235#comment-13647235

Micah Huff commented on AVRO-1316:
----------------------------------

To tack on to [~trochee]'s comment, this is an issue for the generated Protocol files as well.
Both will encounter the same java compiler issue.

> When I work from a very large IDL schema, the Java code generated includes a schema JSON
literal that exceeds the length of the maximum allowed literal string ([65535 characters|http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8323082/size-of-initialisation-string-in-java]).
 
> This creates weird Maven errors like: {{[ERROR] ...FooProtocol.java:[13,89] constant
string too long}}.
> It might seem a little crazy, but a 64-kilobyte JSON protocol isn't outrageous at all
for some of the more involved data structures, especially if we're including documentation
strings etc.
> I believe the fix should be a bit more sensitivity to the length of the JSON literal
(and a willingness to split it into more than one literal, joined by {{+}}), but I haven't
figured out where that change needs to go. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
